Spirit Wear Available Now!

The D118 Band Boosters are thrilled to introduce the first ever FULL spirit wear line for the District Band Programs!

We currently have two types of Spirit Wear available — one celebrating getting the bands back together in 2021 and a new version of the classic “I’m with the band” tshirt. All items are available in colors to represent all of the schools’ band programs. They range in price from $10-$36 and come in adult sizes S-3XL. 

Click here to check out everything that local company Bungalow Printing put together for us!!

Orders are due by Friday, Nov. 12 and will be delivered to the students at school by the end of November — just in time for December concerts and the holidays!! Look for Marching Band Spirit Wear coming soon, too!!


Yard Signs Are Here!

Big thanks to everyone who ordered a Band Pride Yard Sign! The signs have arrived and are ready to be picked up. Hopefully you can make one of the pick-up times we have scheduled for this weekend. See below for those times and dates. If you can’t make it this weekend, we will set up additional times in the near future.


Your Support is Music to Our Ears

The students and directors are so happy to have the D118 Band Programs back together and we hope you are too!

Now is a great time to show off your D118 Bands pride by supporting one of our fundraisers.

  • Custom yard signs to proudly proclaim you are a WHS, WMS or MMS band family
  • A new selection of band spirit wear
  • 50/50 raffle tickets at the Homecoming Football game and middle school band concerts
  • Panhandler’s frozen pizza at middle school band concerts

If you want to support D118 Band Programs, but you don’t want to buy a sign or a pizza or a raffle ticket, No Worries! You can make a cash donation, and as a token of our appreciation you’ll get some special Band Boosters merch.

Band Boosters supports all D118 band programs and relies on donations from our friends and families.

Donations cover the cost of music, supplies and repairs for the bands outside of the school budget; judges for the Solo and Ensemble event; and two scholarships for HS seniors. In other words: we help make our bands the best they can be by celebrating and supporting all D118 band students.

Without the ability to do normal fundraising in the 2020-21 school year we are not as strong financially as we like to be at the beginning of the year. Our Fall Fundraisers offer a little something for everyone to demonstrate their Band Pride and support the amazing band programs at our high school and middle schools! If you have any questions, email us at

Big thanks to My Flavor It Place – Wauconda for hosting a fundraiser on Tuesday tied to the WMS band concert and Culver’s – Island Lake for hosting a fundraiser on Wednesday tied to the MMS concert. Anyone can participate! Just mention Band Boosters so that your purchase will go toward the proceeds they are donating!!


First Middle School Concerts of the Year

The first middle school band concerts of the year are next week! Check your email for information from Mr. Hunter or Ms. Tyler about reserving seats.

We will be at both concerts selling 50/50 raffle tickets and PanHandler’s Pizza frozen pizzas. Click below to volunteer.



New Yard Sign Option Added

We have an update on the Yard Sign Sale. Based on feedback we have received in the last week, we have added a 4th sign option that doesn’t name a specific school.

With this new addition, we have also extended the deadline to place your order until 10/10.

Click here to order online. Select the Group Shipping Option ($5) at checkout.
